To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

1880 Hat, Bonnet, Mittens & Bootees (birth - age 2)

Here are some very simple basics, using small amounts of yarn, and all knit flat and seamed where necessary. The hat, mitts, and bootees shown at right are almost as plain as you can get. The set shown on the left is pretty simple too: the edgings are picked up and knit out on the bonnet and mitts, and worked at the end of the bootees. The mittens are thumbless. You can change 4 ply styles of yarn for ages (tweeds, variegateds, neps, marls, whatever) with this pattern and never get bored at how the pieces turn out.
